Hi Carlos,

There is no direct access to the content in the sitemap as you describe 
it. Also you would need 2 generators in a pipeline what's not possible 
(first one querying the repository, second one reading the file).

You need a 2-pipeline setup. In the main pipeline you query the 
repository, transform the result adding an xinclude "directive" (an 
element in the xinclude namespace) to it, run the xinclude transformer 
and maybe some post transformations. The "included" document (even it 
will replace the original XML from the query completely) will be created 
from a sub-request to Cocoon (cocoon:/-protocol), i.e. second pipeline. 
Here you have again the free choice about what to do.

Hope this helps,
